.When Thomaa Jefferson, .bought
Louisiana from Franca for the

the territory acquired whose wishes
were not consulted, much less their
prior consent obtained. Would Mr.

When tha United Btatea acouired

nothing wrong In It.
The Bee Is no mora In favor of
selling the Philippines to some other
country now than Mr. Bryan ts. but
If we ahould ever adopt the policy
na advocates, by nromlalnr the
Philippines their Independence, and
later rcogn!ilng It, we would still be
entitled to repsyment of the money
paid to Spain, and money since ex

This would not be a sale of people
to themselves, but It would ba a
sale of our property, to which no
objection could justly be made.
We admit that the whole Question
la remote, but evidently It 1 not
remote enough to prevent Mr. Bryan
using it to make a demagogical point
presuming wholly on Ignorance.

The cause of the steady drift from coun

until the passage of the land reform law.
Rack-renting - la-common, and inability

by Russian and Galllclan immigrants
who work for the grCat landed proprietors

tide of Panslavlc Invasion which Prussia
ao vainly-Strives to withstand."
Pen Ptetaro of Tripoli.
Th. neglect whloh tb. olty and barber
cf Tripoli has experienced at the hands
of the festive press agent will end, doubt
less, as soon as Italy finishes the war
and restores order. For th. present a
pen picture of th. captured city written
by John Horn for the Travel magazine
last November must appease th. demand.
'Along the water's edge, viewed from
th. steamer," Mr. Horn writes, "lays the
most truly eastern town I had ever seen.
Before its snowy domes and spearlik.
minarets Algiers, Tunis and even Con
stantinople paled and ware as nothing.
Tripoli could not lay claim to Che splen
dors of these others, but her. was no
mixture cf east and west, no blending of
styles. It waa the purity of line and the
compl.te absence cf European architec
ture which made one feel that this at
least waa the true Arab east Away
along the oasis, framing the white town
with Its dark green; while in th. center.
bathing Its gray portions In th. sparkling
water, towered an old.ppa.nlsh fort, half
In. ruins, 'but still used as a prison and
residence of the Pasha. Tha rest waa a
maze of white roofs, with there and her.
a splash of red, where th. cloths of the
bath house, fluttered In th. sun. On ths

of the town, extending "away In arid
grandeur over hundreds of miles of gray
hills and valleys. Under the terrlbl. rays
of th. midday sun It seems aa inferno of
monotony and heat, but at sunset a very
fairyland cf rose and purpl. takes th.
place of th. palpitating gray."
Tha Preach Army.
In an addreaa at the dedication of a
monument to the soldiers who f.U ia the
war of 1S70, M. Klotx, French minister
of finance, reviewed th. work which
had been accomplished for the army
under the Third republic. The effective
strength, - be said, had Increased from
416.591 ia 1S7S to 6S1.491 in 1910. notwith
standing the fluctuations in the birth
rate. Thanks to ths elastic provisions of
the short service system. 800.000 reserv
ists, belonging to the recently discharged
contlgents would be available en the first
day of mobilization, and. together with
the sanding force, would form a perfectly
trained and equipped mass cf nearly
1,400 men. The so-called second lines would
be constituted by a similar number of
reservists belonging to earlier contingents.
With th. 1,700,000 territorial troops,
France. therefore could count upon
nearly 4.500,000 combatants, z.sOO.OOO of
whom would be fully trained and
equipped, while th. second-line troops
would., attar a few days, become as for
midable as the first line. Since 1871, he

seven milliards of trance (15,400,000.000) on

A dash of native humor friagtag the
cheery optimism ef Irishmen la re
flected la the proposed decoration for the
Insignia ef nationhood, the crown of
heme rule. The harp, the shamrock and
the green Hag will continue aa the fav
orite symbols of the race, but the Irish
hound Is to be supplantad by the blue
Irish terrier, th. moat typical animal on
th. Island, and rarely found elsewhere.
Th. hound la eeteemed the fleetest run
ner cn four feat, but supremacy in speed
IS not considered th. proper trait te
symbolise the century's struggle for self
gevenuaent. The blue terrier, on the con
trary, is tbe bast fighter la Ireland's
cantos kingdom, and tha bast friend of
all. And he la really blue. He haa long,
thick hair ef 'unmistakably slatay ceru.
loan. He Is absolutely sa Irish specialty;
la fact, he Is hardly found outside his
nstive stamping ground of southern Ire
land. But the blue terrier's chief claim to
national tmportanoe la his long lineage.
Blue-hatred, he also is blue blooded, for
he belongs to tb. oldest family of the
Irish canln. world. H. waa known In th.
days of th. Irish kings; he barked at th.
heals of Cromwell's soldiers; be waa
svlctad la raokrant days with ths suffer
ing peasantry. He haa braved It all. and
his brlthrata shews ao signs or oecao-
